the u.s. postal service says delivering the mail on saturdays must stop. if they are to survive. it's one of two american institutions in the news tonight for differing reasons in changing times. we want to begin tonight with nbc's tom costello in glen echo, maryland. tom, good evening. >> reporter: hi, brian, no secret the postal service is up to its neck in red ink, handling 30 billion fewer pieces of first class mail today than just four years ago. and guess what? delivery of packages booming because we're all buying stuff online. this action is about just trying to keep the lights on. for people all over america, like 71-year-old lois sexton in tennessee, that mailbox at the end of the driveway has been a reliable connection to the rest of the world. >> that's my communication with the people i have my retirement with, my social security. >> reporter: since 1863, six days a week, rain or shine, letters, bills, government checks, newspapers, even movies, have arrived, even on saturday. now the 21st century with its e-mail, e-cards and e-pay, has come knocking. >> we cannot put ou
, this is "way too early." it's so good. thanks for being up with us this tuesday. we have a lot to talk about including a snub by c-pac. governor chris christie's invitation seems to be lost in the mail. why a 2016 contender won't be speaking out. the market drops 200 points after fears of gridlock in europe's third largest economy. we'll get a live report from london. first, a stand off from washington. $85 billion in spending cuts on friday. sound familiar? president obama and republicans have plenty to say. still just not saying it to each other. despite this so-called crisis, the two sides haven't spoken directly this week and have yet to meet face-to-face this calendar year. they plan to push the plans. john boehner rules autothe possibility of new taxes. >> i stand by those commitments to make the reforms for smart spending cuts. but we also need republicans to adopt the same approach to tax reform that speaker boehner championed two months ago. >> the president says we have to have another tax increase to avoid the sequester. well, mr. president, you got your tax increase. it's time to

with these endless manufactured crises that are now coming at us with such disgusting regularity. no deal on medicare/medicaid reform until the republicans pony up tax reform. boehner says no tax reform until there is reform. both sides can go on with the squared off positions as long as their political bases support them. this could be a long time, because boehner's biggest worry isn't the president, it's the tea party members of his own caucus who might just bring him down if he agrees to raise revenues. the president's biggest worry isn't boehner alone, it's the democrats who will assault him if he cuts a deal with bain they're doesn't raise revenues. well, the only question to which i do not know the answer is how in the world can boehner and the president cut a deal when they're so restricted to what they can accept? and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to ted show from new york. three days from austerity. john boehner is scolding the senate, while the president is out working with the fo

for the increase. however, some analysts predict 2013 will be less brutal than 2012 when the average u.s. household spent nearly $3,000 on gas. >>> thanks to a daring fbi rescue, a little boy who spent the last week as the hostage of an alleged murderer is safe and sound this morning. >> i've been to the hospital. i have visited with ethan. he is doing fine. he's laughing, joking, playing, eating. the things that you would expect a normal 5 to 6-year-old young man to do. >> police say the boy's kidnapper 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes is dead. however, details about the raid are still unclear at the moment as law enforcement officials begin what they say will be a thorough and labor-intensive investigation. nbc's kurt gregory has more. >> reporter: relief in the small community of midland city, alabama, following the dramatic rescue of a 5-year-old boy held captive for seven days in an underground bunker. late monday afternoon that the tightly-knit community had anxiously been awaiting to hear. >> at approximately 3:12 this afternoon, fbi agents safely recovered the child who's been held hostage for n

delivered in the u.s. capital in this must have pomp and circumstance. president obama's first state of the union since his re-election will be ambitious in his vision and no doubt punctuated. maybe some of us watching at home will be applauding. if you are near a television, the state of the union will be unavoidable. the networks and cable news will, as always, broadcast wall-to-wall coverage of the speech. the attention given to the president's speech is indicative of everything that falls under the category, very important things required by the constitution. have you ever noticed how the constitution described the state of the union? you might be surprised to find the founders are vague and sound bored with the whole idea of it. article two, section three reads he shall from time-to-time give to the congress information of the state of the union. recommend to their consideration such measures as he may judge necessary and expedient. he may. on extraordinary occasions, convene both houses or either of them. in disagreement with them, he may adjourn them to such times he thinks pr

and police say he has access to multiple weapons and assault rifles. cnn's kyung lah is joining us from los angeles where the police chief is calling it extremely worry some and scare ree. what's the latest kyung? >> reporter: certainly scary for anyone connected to the police department in southern california. this is where today's shooting spree began but all of this, wolf, began earlier this week. the murder spree began on sunday with the double killing of a newly engaged couple, monica quan and keith lawrence, quan, the daughter of a retired lapd captain, the officer who represented christopher dorner in front of the police board that eventually fired him. dorner refers to quan's murder in his man guess stow. he writes, i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours. self-preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death as i died long ago on january 2nd of '09, a date a few month after dorner was fired as a police officer. the lapd fanned out, launching 40 protection details throughout southern california. >> lapd is the specific target but a

immigrant is not accurate and therefore should not be used. really? watch this. >> i hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today. our citizens -- the people in this country are not illegal, they are out of status. they are new americans that are are immigrants. >> sean: political correctness. looks like mr. conyers has take and page from the obama playbook because over the last four years we have seen the president master the art of dictating which words, which phrases we can and can mott use. for example remember the war on terror is now an overseas contingency operation. terrorist attacks are now man caused disasters and saying islamic radicalism is off limits because it might hurt somebody's little feelings. i may be old fashioned but i believe in call things what they are. a terrorist is a terrorist and someone who enters the country in an unlawful manner is an illegal immigrant. instead of giving us the vocabulary lessons maybe congressman conyers should be protecting the borders and making that his top priority. after all, american lives are at risk. that is all the
